The Scene: The Pearly Gates to Heaven. St Peter
is receptionist at the entrance. - A cat shows up.
St Peter says "I know you! You were a very nice
cat on earth and didn't cause any trouble, so I
want to offer a gift to you of one special thing
you have always wanted."
Cat: "Well, I did always long to own a nice satin
pillow like my master had, so I could lie on it."
St Peter: "That's easy. Granted. You shall have
the satin pillow after you enter in."
Next a group of mice appeared.
St Peter: "Ah, I remember you. You were such good
mice on earth. You didn't steal food from anyone's
house and never hurt other animals. Therefore, I
want to grant you one special wish you always wanted."
The Chief Mouse replied, "Well, we always watched
the children playing and saw them roller skate, and
it was beautiful, and it looked like so much fun.
So can we each have some roller skates, please?"
St Peter: "Granted. You shall have your wish."
Next day, St Peter is making the rounds inside the
Gates, and sees the cat.
"Well, Cat...Did you enjoy the satin pillow?"
Cat: "Oh, indeed I did. And say...that "Meals on
Wheels" thing was a nice touch, too!"
